Plan Your Night For Your Best Possible Experience!
This year, the SNAG Gallery Crawl will be located in the Pearl Arts District. There will be a lot to take in and we suggest you plan accordingly of what you’d like to see first! There is much to explore and many hidden gems that you will find throughout your evening. The Pearl offers a lot more than what we have listed here! It is an easy streetcar ride from the Mariott Hotel. Check out the Tri-Met to help plan your transportation!
All Galleries listed under the SNAG Gallery Crawl will have hours of 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Thursday, May 24th.

Curated by Christine Clark, Shape Shifters is an exhibition featuring four Portland-based artists: Heidi Schwegler, Courtney Kemp, Colin Kippen, and Gina Rios. Formally trained in metalsmithing/jewelry, all have practiced professionally in the field, however, over time the work has shifted off the body into a more sculptural realm. Craftsmanship, methodical process and material sensitivity together become a part of the content – a conscious and strategic nod to their training in metalsmithing.
